Result: Kei Kamara strike fires Columbus Crew to victory over Chicago Fire

The Columbus Crew edge out the Chicago Fire in their MLS clash as Kei Kamara scores the only goal of the game at Toyota Park.

Kei Kamara scored the only goal of the game to fire the Columbus Crew to a 1-0 victory over the Chicago Fire in their MLS clash on Wednesday evening.

The Crew threatened first when Federico Higuain threaded a through-ball into the path of Kamara, but his strike went just wide of the post from inside the box.

Justin Meram carved out a shooting opportunity for Ethan Finlay with a through-ball, but the forward's effort was well saved by Sean Johnson.

Johnson made another fine stop to deny the Crew when he displayed quick reactions to save Kamara's effort from close range.

Columbus finally took the lead in the 41st minute when Finlay lifted a cross into the box from the right and Kamara powered a header past Johnson.

In the second half, Chicago pushed to get back into the match when Kennedy Igboananike fired a low volleyed effort at goal, but Steve Clark was on hand to make the save.

The Fire came close again when David Accam pounced on a loose ball inside the area, but his strike was well stopped by Clark.

In the dying minutes, Jason Johnson had the chance to net an equaliser as he latched on to a cross into the box, but put his header wide of the target.
